The new lineal heavyweight champion of the world is more than willing to engage in another bout with the former titleholder.
After defeating Wladimir Klitschko via unanimous decision (115-112 x 2, 116-111), undefeated Tyson Fury says he knows his legacy can only grow from defending his titles against the decade-long champion.
Fury said to BBC:
“I’m a fighter, so I will take on all challengers. I want to be a great champion. I’d like to do it all again. I came here and took the world titles so whatever happens next is a blessing.
“To be honest, it doesn’t matter to me where I fight. If you say I’m fighting in Japan, Turkey, Azerbaijan, America, wherever it has to be, it has to be.
As for Klitschko, who lost his first fight in over 10 years, the former champion said he’s interested in fighting the brash Brit once more.
“I have a rematch in my contract, yes,” Klitschko said (h/t BBC). “Where, how, when? Let’s wait and you will definitely get to know.
